Effective November, 2019
Incitement is a social media platform specifically designed to support the United Nations agenda for the Sustainable Development Goals. Every day, people use Incitement to share their views, initiatives, and progress in context of this common goal.
As a for-purpose social media platform we cater to specific audiences that we believe play a key role in achieving the SDGs by 2030, and we recognize how important it is for Incitement to be a place where people feel empowered participate and communicate in this context, and we take our role in keeping abuse off our service seriously.
That’s why we are continuously developing our Community Standards that outline what is and is not allowed on Incitement. Incitement is a new platform. As such, we follow generally accepted social media standards from leading platforms such as Facebook and Kickstarter, and as we collect feedback from our community and work with experts in fields such as technology, public safety and human rights, we will continue to develop our own set of guidelines.
Incitement is a place for equality and bringing people closer together under the SDG umbrella. We want brands to adopt more sustainability practices, causes to create more sustainable impact, volunteers to suppor their favourite causes, the world to see accelerated progress on the SDGs through Incitement, and for content and conversations on the Incitement platform to revolve around this common goal.
In some cases we do allow content which would otherwise go against our Community Standards – if it is newsworthy and in the public interest. We do this only after weighing the public interest value against the risk of harm and we look to international human rights standards to make these judgments.
We care about equality, safety, privacy, respect, and authenticity.
We are committed to freedom of expression, but we recognize that the internet creates new and increased opportunities for abuse. If we limit expression on Incitement, we do it in service of one or more those values.
Users of Incitement
Businesses, brands, companies, and other private sector entities use Incitement to create, find, and support causes in line the SDGs, share their work and progress on sustainability and corporate responsibility, and create content to build community around what they stand for and against.
Incitement enables the private sector to allocate resources to SDG-priorities globally by providing tools and functionalities that help create more transparency, accountability, and awareness around their corporate giving.
To ensure that organisations listed on Incitement are genuine and not in violation of any laws or human rights, we have created a Pages & Projects Policy, which all organisations on Incitement must follow.
Non-profits, NGOs (Non-Governmental Organisations), social enterprises, SPOs (Social Purpose Organisations), and other civil society groups use Incitement to build community around their causes, raise funds, recruit volunteers, and share their social impact with the world.
Incitement aims to support this group of humanitarian organisations we call ’causes’ in their fundraising, recruitment, project management, impact measurement, and overall efficiency and performance.
To ensure that causes listed on Incitement are genuine and not in violation of any laws or human rights, we have created a Pages & Projects Policy, which all causes on Incitement must follow.
Volunteers use Incitement to find and join causes to support, share knowledge and experiences, and spend time contributing to a positive outcome of projects published by their favourite causes.
To provide a safe place for volunteers to work with causes on Incitement, we have created a Volunteer Policy which everyone who uses Incitement to volunteer must follow.
People interested in the SDGs
Every day, people use Incitement to share their experiences, connect with friends, colleagues, and causes, and build communities around what they believe in. Incitement aims to provide a safe and transparent environment for everyone.
Our Community Standards apply to everyone, all around the world, and to all types of content. People can report potentially violating content, including Pages, Projects, Profiles, individual content, and comments by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The consequences for violating our Community Standards vary depending on the severity of the violation and the person’s history on the platform. For instance, we may warn someone for a first violation, but if they continue to violate our policies, we may restrict their ability to post on Facebook or disable their profile. We also may notify law enforcement when we believe there is a genuine risk of physical harm or a direct threat to public safety.
We trust to count on your understanding and collaboration in making Incitement a safe and conducive place to accelerate progress on the SDGs.
